In 2007, I quit my job as a microbiologist. I wasn’t making much money online at that time, but I knew the potential was limitless. I could exercise my free speech by publishing ideas and experiences in articles, videos, and books—and even make a living doing so. Fast forward twelve years, and I see how false that promise turned out to be.

I recently watched a video on internet censorship by David Icke. He shared the facts on the birth of the internet by the Pentagon’s technological arm (DARPA) and the tippy-toe steps we’ve taken to the current wave of deplatforming and censorship that I—and by consequence, you—are being affected by.

Domain registrars promised that I could “own” my little corner of the web with a domain name, and now my domains can be seized by a faceless bureaucracy. Google told me to create the best content I could to be ranked highly in their search engine, but then they manipulated their algorithms to lift dull corporate propaganda above my own. Twitter promised that I could share any thought that came to mind, and after I spent years doing so, they changed their mind and will now ban me if I make fun of an obese feminist. YouTube said I could upload engaging videos that viewers love, and even make money doing so, but then they demonetized most of my videos, put others in “limited state,” and banned me from live streaming for three months because I asked if women who wear chokers want to be treated subserviently. Disqus offered me a service to allow the community at Return Of Kings to discuss what was on their mind, but they banned the site because they didn’t want us to discuss certain things. Amazon said I could publish books on their platform and even make a living as a writer, but then they banned the paperbook and ebook editions of nine of my books with no explanation. Paypal said it would be easy to add payment processing to my site, and then later showed how easy it is to ban me for political reasons.

On and on the same story goes: companies seduced me with the promise that I could amplify my voice and connect others to my work, only to silence my voice and disconnect me from an internet that has become integral for not only keeping in touch with others, but also earning a living. I traded a corporate job, one where I could be fired for any reason, to get banned by tech companies for no reason. What a great deal I made!

It’s very telling that the crackdown on free speech began after two key events:

  • widespread adoption of the smartphone
  • natural monopoly status for the likes of Google, Amazon, Facebook, and Paypal

Once most of the world saw the internet as an essential utility, and tech companies dominated their particular sector, they had us by the balls and could exercise their true goal of human control. It turns out that the internet was not given to us by benevolent rulers so that we’d have access to the world’s information and become wise—they hooked us on it so that we could be controlled. If you examine the situation from the perspective of me, Alex Jones, Gavin McInnes, or countless others, there is no other possible explanation, and the only argument up for debate is when they knew the internet was essential to their goals.

If you dare to publicly share the truth on the internet, they will ban you. If you dare to share the truth at work, they will fire you. If you dare to share the truth in university, you will receive bad grades or face a tribunal led by a panel of lesbianic women. They’re all connected, all controlled by the same elites. If you haven’t been affected yet, either you have a strong filter, and could have survived during the Soviet Union without being sent to the gulags, or have not yet been heard. When the attack against you does come, you will be struck by how banal your thought crime actually was. If you have the predilection for understanding and sharing the truth of your reality, I promise that they will come for you. If not today then tomorrow.

I wish I knew this eleven years ago. I wish I knew about the elites and their agenda, and how even a self-published dating coach of middling influence would fall in their crosshairs, because I feel like a fool for spending so many years building up internet domains and platforms that are scheduled for vaporization, along with much of the internet that I have come to enjoy. All of it has to go, and it will.

I continue to write, but I know that distributing my articles and books will become much more difficult. They will marginalize my already modest reach as much as they can until my work slowly fades into the memory hole. I’m not especially worried about what will happen to my life. Maybe I will buy a few acres of land and LARP as a farmer. On that little plot of earth, the only free speech I will have is when I speak into the sky. Men of the future will not even be able to research what masculinity is or come to understand how their nature is being undermined, and those few men who stick their heads above the poppy will be identified and re-educated. If they refuse re-education like I have, they will be isolated so as not to disturb the seamless programming of the slave class.

What incredible tyranny awaits us! Once artificial intelligence is perfected, and everyone willingly connects their mind to it for the trivial reason of “convenience,” every single bit of information that reaches your senses will be curated propaganda. They will re-define masculinity as homosexuality, sodomy as love, and strength as weakness. Boys who are born in the age of AI will have no chance. Their minds will shut down when you try to discuss any idea that is not approved, and that’s assuming that discussions with non-approved citizens will even be possible.

They will not let us have free speech on the internet. They are removing what they have given us, one step at a time. If you speak the truth, you will be cast out, but there is a variable that their analytic models cannot precisely quantify: the response to oppression from those men who are currently awake. Will they keep their head down and try to squeeze out any happiness left in the freedom they’re allowed, or will they offer themselves up to be grinded to dust, to fight against what they know in their souls is wrong?

    That’s when decentralization comes in. We should support every decentralized application, including cryptocurrencies. And then we will get our natural rights back.

        Perhaps, but it was also forbidden in the brutal Soviet Union, and people still did it.

        I remember when our high school class visited Leningrad (now St. Petersburg) in the late 80s. Our bus driver had connections, so everybody got to change currency with an illegal (better) exchange rate. The driver handed our cash to some guy, and after driving a few kilometers on a highway, a packet of roubles was thrown to us from a car traveling to an opposite direction, agent movie style. Small transactions could be done at a street corner, but this was not a small transaction.

        My point; when there is a will, there is a way. Currently gold and bitcoins can be bought anonymously in Europe and the U.S. You can purchase gold, and keep it in a vault in e.g. Singapore. Ironically, globalism works for our favor in this small niche, because even they can’t reach all jurisdictions and plug all holes. In addition, strong cryptographic tools are available for the common man. A Soviet denizen did not have any of that, still many resisted.

      2. MarxismIsEvil January 25, 2019 at 12:19 am

        Cannabis possession, sales, and consumption have been illegal in many jurisdictions for decades. How well has that worked? It has only increased wealth and power of those who defy the law. Same thing happened with alcohol prohibition. I don’t use cannabis and seldom drink alcohol. But I’m aware of how supply, demand, profits, and lack of public support for certain laws work.

        Most people are against counterfeiting because it’s a form of theft from the public. Cryptocurrency exchanges are a mutually beneficial transfer of value that takes nothing from the public. How are cryptos any different from e-mailed gift cards? If cryptos are outlawed, value can still be transferred online with gift cards, which can be used to buy groceries, other necessities, or traded for cash or gold.

    2. MrM January 21, 2019 at 2:46 pm

      I am baffled so many of you believe in cryptos… do you really think elites would allow any system that could undermine their power? If the biggest banks are onto cryptos, you could tell something is off… besides, only real money, barter, physical exchange can save us from their control. Going all digital is madness. Those currencies dont even exist! Its all on the internet. And do you control the Internet? Do you? Who owns the fibre optic cables on the bottom of the oceans? You? No, my man. Its THEM.

      1. baseer January 21, 2019 at 8:26 pm

        bitcoin doesn’t ask for allowance because it’s decentralized so the concept of ‘allowing’ it to exist doesn’t make sense. you are projecting the govt’s historical ability to control things due to centralization because communication methods were not as abundant, so we had to rely on central govt’s as authoritative figures.

        we’re never going back to a time where the internet doesn’t exist because we now rely on it for everything, so there’s nothing the elites can do to stop the internet except pass bills like SOPA but the only thing that’s going to do is incentivize the creation of decentralized solutions.

        it’s been over 10 years since the inception of bitcoin, countless “bans” from countries, where has it gotten them? lots of propaganda about how it’s finally ‘dead’ (btw price action is just a distraction). why can’t they just stop it right now if they’re oh so powerful??????

      2. Tingletangle January 22, 2019 at 3:24 am

        I thnk it is pretty easy for big tech to cut you off from the internet completely if the want to. So, as decentralized as it may be, the moment they detect that you are using crypto, they can just switch you off. Anything digital can be swithed off, so there is no way of using crypto unless they allow you to.

      3. Baseer January 22, 2019 at 6:19 am

        You can’t detect an encrypted packet, such as monero transfers. And there’s no way they’re going to enforce the use of unencrypted packets only, because we rely on such encryption for everything.

        If they could they would’ve shut it down by now.

      4. Elliot February 5, 2019 at 3:06 am

    I still have faith in alt-tech and decentralization, but admittedly the present is grim. I saw the writing on the wall after the attacks on you during the meetup outrage, and began to see the internet as castles built on sand. Now I focus on real-world assets and offline revenue. I hope for all of us, however, you keep fighting the good fight.

        This is such a wonderful way to put it.

        You can still speak truths, but you have to word it differently.

        I’ve been doing this ever since getting redpilled. Not only is it easier, but you market your ideas so much easier.

        The problem is people who don’t understand nuance, and will just state things Radical Honesty-style.

        In the past, that might not have gotten you deplatformed, but it still wouldn’t have been effective.

      3. Boothe February 2, 2019 at 7:21 pm

        This is the reason Christ taught in parables. There are some folks who will be able to interpret the nuances, figures of speech and underlying message. Others aren’t supposed to; they’ve been given over to a strong delusion. And they are in big trouble for their folly. It’s up to us to overcome the stumbling blocks that the “elite” have put in front of us and speak the truth in spite of them.

      I was part of my (central southeastern USA) city’s meet-up arrangement. They hysteria and propaganda put out was truly outrageous but a very telling sign of things to come.

      I’m extremely careful in what I say online until the day in which I become free from the typical blowback the average man is subject too.

      You’ve got to be very careful. That being said, the “cat is out of the bag” as far as what is being said where the media and others can’t squash it and censor it entirely.

  5. TexMexBBQ January 21, 2019 at 11:38 am

    Some people I know believe that behind everything, controlling everything, is global dark money — which is either seeking to protect itself or expand its power. I believe there is some truth to that….but I don’t believe a single Illuminati is running everything – I think there are global dark money factions constantly at war with each other. I think the best we can do is continually seek ways to become as independent as possible from all forms of tyranny and totalitarianism, and promote the ideals of America’s founding. Everyone must also be willing fight to undermine tyranny because the degeneration of the world is getting progressively worse every day – and the power and influence of the global dark money grows stronger every day.

    1. MrM January 21, 2019 at 2:50 pm

      Maybe, maybe not. Hard to say. If they fight with each other, then they know they are the ”better sort of humans” and they have rules they abide because so far nothing is changing for the better, and they are still in charge. Ofc internet is only castles build on sand. All the social media nonsense.. do you think Rotschild wastes time on Instagram? 😀 Ofc not, its for us, for the slaves. To create a false life, a mask, which we need to wear so we can became advertising banners for the corporations… thinking that we got ”fame” (which means that other slaves recognizes us through the computer screen and envy us) its madness… and if you become a bit annoying, start taking a bit too much space, you got what Roosh get…

        That’s funny, because I was fired from a walmart that had almost no men for the crime of say Hello to female employees. It’s worth noting I was a door greeter at that walmart and my job consisted of saying hello to everyone that walked in the door.

      2. Boothe February 2, 2019 at 7:37 pm

        We had a gal in a manufacturing plant where I worked as an engineer who had lost two husbands before she was 35 (both died). She always seemed so sad. So I would make sure I spoke to her every morning as I checked the assembly lines to cheer her up. I could almost always get a glimmer of a smile and a hello or good morning out of her. I guess one day she had a bad case of PMS. I walked by and cheerfully said “Good morning sunshine!” By 10:00 AM (after first break) I was called into the HR manager’s office for this “transgression”. He blew it off, but I never spoke to her again. I was good friends with the end of line tester and she asked why I wouldn’t speak to this woman. I explained it and told her that if the gal had any technical questions or problems on the line, she could address it to her to pass on to me. I knew that if I did not interact with her in any way, she couldn’t accuse me of anything. You only get one shot at Mr. Boothe.

  8. Blackfriar January 21, 2019 at 12:22 pm

    Roosh, no matter what happens…you have made a difference. I wish things could be different for you, intellectually and financially. Truth normally comes at a high cost. You have paid a high price for spreading knowledge. People like you and Naughty Nomad have done things that 99.9% of the world will never do. I forsee things coming into your life. You have been a blessing to many people and I see that coming back to you. Thanks for all that you have done. I appreciate it.

    Keep it up man. Unfortunately, near the end of RoK, things got pretty bad. Many articles felt like controlled opposition or were written by posers. I liked your articles though. Keep doing your thing, people still want to hear what you have to say, and i must say it would be a great loss to see you disappear from the internet after everything you’ve been through. Dont give up dude!

  12. Burn it Down January 21, 2019 at 1:46 pm

    A great article throughout.

    When the attack against you does come, you will be struck by how banal your thought crime actually was.

    So true. For the past week or so, a member of European Parliament and the chairman ot the Finns Party in Finland has been blocked by Twitter from logging into his account (@halla_aho). The parliamentary elections are in three months, so Twitter is firing for effect.

    His crime? Twitter does not tell, but I sucpect it was quoting a newspaper headline from a few years back, “Refugees are the new Nokia [for Finland]”. So it was OK for that idiot journalist to say so, but it is not OK to quote him. Pointing out the enablers of the current crime wave of child rapes, makes Twitter freeze your account.

    Then you’re dependent on it
    Then they take it away from u.

    Colonial empires did this, tech giants and government entities and ngo splc type nanny influencers are the new colonial powers.

    Free speech is unheard speech.

    Ali akbar the right wing twitter dude is trying some stuff with cul+++ure to try and sort pipelines for free speech that will make it financially and legally expensive to take down but I’m not hopefully nor do I think it will extent to all speech.

    You’re going to get free speech in a Construction site or a male only space but that’s about it. There’s so much infiltration.

    I see twitter libertarian idiots, constitutionalists and brand builders talk about showing their face to get more money and it’s like, don’t u understand our views are persona non grata?

    It doesn’t matter how mild we are, it’s wrong think

    The best thing for every man to do is make money pipelines that he can farm even if his identity is in the trash, and also to never speak with your personality out there

    Maybe Roosh should have a book translated to Chinese and published there. A polish band from the crappy, plastic music genre known as Disco Polo tapped that market and released an album with their biggest hits which sold about 60m copies in China. Forget their target audience, the total population of Poland is about 38m.

    During communism, censorship was pervasive so every book had to be approved by the government for publishing, I suspect China is the same but they may not care about game, it’s not a political book, but who knows maybe it goes against the Confucian principles. The one child policy turned out to be a demographic disaster so they may look favorably on a manual for a Chinese guy to lock down a girl outside of the country.

    What we have is the decline and fall of the Western World, but it will be a generation when all the foreigners have grown up, or about 25 years from now when there’ll be no denying the reality. Western Europe is finished, there’s no hope and everyone caught up in this mess will be struggling instead of prospering with a happy family, just a part of the vast, lost generation. The US will lose its position and importance too, just wait 15 years, when the dust settles China will recover while the west won’t- it can even go full totalitarian. And it ain’t fun when a huge, crucial chunk of somebody’s lifetime is taken up by all this.

  17. Fokker January 21, 2019 at 8:07 pm

    I went to Mcdonald´s with my two kids this weekend. The elite had decided to have unisex toys in Happy meals. This meant equal toys for boys and girls. In the end for some reason. Toys were mostly for boys. I mean star troopers. Black for boys and pink for girls. For some reason also the toys would run out. And last time I went there. Before this weekend they only had pink star troopers. So I told the waiter: I don´t want that shit for my boys. Give me another one. They delivered some purple shit. I gave it to my kids. They both looked at it. And sent it to garbage. So this weekend they wanted to eat happy meals. I don´t eat mcdonalds. I take them there. Order the food. Put it on they´re table. And when they are settled I leave to choose something else to eat. Sometimes I eat a cheeseburger. But I remenber when I was litle I really enjoyed happy meals and Mcdonalds. I told my wife we should probably go to Burger King. But they wanted happy meals. Guess what: They had Hot Wheels for boys and Barbies for girls. I was ordering the happy meals and on the screen this options appeared.
    Today I went to church. There´s a high class church near my house. But I don´t like it. My wife goes there on sunday with my kids. But I dislike it. So I went to the church I normally went when I was in university asking for God to give me strength to study and pass exams. I´ve never asked god to help me pass exams. Just give me strength and peace of mind to study and take away needless distractions. I´ve arrived 1hour earlier than the mass. Because I want to talk to god alone. And just be peaceful. I like churches because it´s peaceful. You can just enjoy a moment of tranquility. Didn´t knew 1hour before the mass there´s a woman who takes the priest turn and starts praying out loud. Heil Mary and lord´s prayer. She repeats the prayers 40-50 times. I asked god not to abandon me. Protect my family and friends. And for the first time ever I´ve prayed for a politician. I´ve never ever prayed for a politician. Nor do I even remember them when in church. But this time prayed for Trump. Trump cannot act like Hitler. Starting issuing decrees left and right. But he is changing things. Or at least putting the degeneracy on hold.

    The other day I was driving with my car. My mobile ringed. When I´m going to answer and put in loud speaker. This guy with a moto comes right next to my car. And makes some gestures about me not using a mobile while driving. Didn´t have patience to explain him I was puting the loud speaker system on. So made an Ok gesture. But the dude keeps complaining. As he was a policeman or had any authority. So I tell him to fuck off. He points me to a parking place. Let´s go I answer. When his moto drives pass me I see a logo of a tv network. Huuuu. I´m so happy I´m going to fuck up a journalist. One thing is lawyer and judges I respect them and consider them essential to rule of law. But journalists. What? those useless garbage who studied 10 pages books in university. And now think they are important? So he stops with his bike. I got out of the car. The moment he sees me coming. He starts his moto and leaves. But after seeing he was a journalist I want to beat him. Just a regular biker. Would pass. But journalist. So the light was red. With cars jammed And I believe can catch him. So I start running after him. The faggot passes the red light. I started yelling come back here bitch. And the other cars think I´m crazy.

    the company called and wanted use to had 4G something so they could keep constant monitoring on it and I am assuming it had a gps in it too. I said HELL know, I don’t allow any cell phones in the house. We don’t have any either.
    That is how intrusive it is getting. Yes the computer in many ways has ruined my life.
    But on the good side I love your funny videos. What did you think of move Red Sparrow,
    I was trained for that but was more of Red cuckoo bird, my code name was Nutcracker.
    I didn’t kill or beat up just pillow talk looking for people, but everyone seemed to behaving when I was around, or I have very high tolerance for bad behavior.

  23. olderguardrooshvnotroosh January 23, 2019 at 12:16 pm

    These are worrying times for all free-thinkers. I agree that we now have to act as if we were living in the Soviet Union, and “clean” our online activity from 2006 onwards, because, 10-15 years from now, it is not inconceivable that people engaging or who have engaged into thoughtcrime will be banned from financial services, airlines and healthcare, without human intervention, as AI algorithms will automatically ban dissidents.

    Roosh, your gaming articles, your life philosophy and location-independent work ethic were an important influence for many men. Notwithstanding the foregoing, your work was always tarnished with homophobia, misogyny and promotion of hate and violence. What was the point of your antics? What was the point of your joke about rape? To sell more books? Well, they worked, short term, and now you are blocked from key websites and the UK, likely for life.

    With all due respect, many other writers in the manosphere are thriving, because their discourse is realist, and pursuant to positive masculine improvement, while acknowledging the nature of men -and women- the red pill, and gaming principles. How many books has Rollo Tomassi sold? Feminists and marxists hate him, but he has never engaged into an openly misogynistic and dogmatic discourse.

    Still, you were more or less prepared for this. I remember your posts some years ago that your fuck you fund is enough for several years of expenses. Perhaps purchasing a plot of land and living semi off-the grid will be key for free thought, like in Blade Runner, where free market, creativity and free thought still exist, in the countryside, in the city-slums and in the borderlands.

    Please keep writing, I have been following your writings since I was a 15 year old girl.

    I agree with a lot of things. I am today married and have two young children, taking in what I have learned from here.

    I have a few questions, western boys are becoming more boyish and less masculine and there is not the same respect between the sexes. Looking at the male sex only for a moment. Do you think it is because of video games, parents leaving kids to themselves, not being allowed to talk about emotions and learning to know themselves through that and exploring the world and not just the ipad and regarding respect to girls, we often say things like he is acting like a small girl, doesn”™t that tell us something negative about girls? And for the girls, we tell them that they have all the time in the world to explore and men this and that, but it has it”™s drawbacks?

    1. PolishKnight January 28, 2019 at 2:36 pm

      In general, masculinity is less respected in the west for a variety of reasons not just leftism. Materialism and the free-market element of the right regards humans as chattel as customers or workers or, if the men act up, as problems to be resolved by security. Prior to modern feminism, the family courts were making it more of a liability to be a normal man in that if he worked long hours to provide and support a family, and his wife decided to divorce him because she”™s “bored”, he”™d be hit as “benefitting” from the marriage by earning more money (never mind that he worked long hours for the family) and made to pay child-support and alimony.

      All this predates modern feminism but it was kicked into high gear when women competed with jobs with men and the “nasty” feminism kicked in: sexual harassment allegations if a man asks her out or lets his guard down in her presence and allegations of abuse during divorce. Women who earned more demanded men ALSO earn more and this made the men resentful (well, ok it makes me resentful) but I also think that other men can”™t help but feel that way as well.

      That”™s when the men are just being ideal. If a man actually goes through a hardship, like human beings do, it”™s like Superman losing his superpowers and just being “normal”. Modern masculine culture has little sympathy for men who are “losers” even here. On the one hand, it”™s for the best to not pity losers and crybabies and feed into their infantilism like feminism does for women but on the other, genuine problems men face such as soldiers coming from war with PTSD (Rambos) or going through tough times as work will get little sympathy.

      If you were Peter Pan and this was what “growing up” meant, would you want to grow up?

      I can”™t speak for the younger generation, but for young men they at least do have time to sort out of this if they can avoid prison. Roosh is an accomplished writer with a college degree and if he changed his name and just decided to settle down and start a family, he could. His biggest challenge is his own perspective and perhaps a bit of cynicism. For young girls, even though the system caters to them the danger is that they don”™t have “all the time in the world”. Again, it”™s perspective but also biology. A woman whose in her 30”™s not only has a biological clock but also is increasingly priced out of her own market. This is why I hope Roosh”™s book “Lady” helps to advise women to avoid this trap.

      For men, the way out is a little easier because beta cucks are miserable and either they self-destruct or find a way out. But feminism is a trap in that it convinces women they”™re empowered and happy.

    Your writings changed my life, don’t quit writing roosh

    The Soviet Union wishes they could have controlled what people see and think the way the left does now. It’s nearly complete. Until or unless the right can create an alternative, we will be marginalized to ever greater extents.

  27. LonleyWolf January 24, 2019 at 7:44 am

    you’re the best Roosh don’t give up

  28. ZZXX January 24, 2019 at 10:54 am

    Freedom of speech never existed.

    There is not one single place in the world where you can say what you want and never be punished for your ideas. It is how humans work.

    1. PolishKnight January 28, 2019 at 2:39 pm

      True, but in the states one doesn’t get a knock on the door like in England from the local constable arresting you for violating the “Hate speech” ordinance.

      Yes, it’s a challenge to remain employed and still go to family dinners expressing your ideas but the right to not be thrown into a prison for offending the Baron is an amazing concept from the American Revolution.

  29. atavisionary January 24, 2019 at 2:47 pm

    Linking to David Icke was a very brave thing to do. He has been maligned way too much. While he may not be 100% correct, the gist of his ideas are correct. There is higher dimensional forces interacting with 3d humans and directing very intelligent schemes for complete control. This is the world we live in. He went a bit nuts after his kundilini experience. Understandable really, that’s some tough stuff to deal with. Hard to interpret and understand. But he was able to put it into perspective and become a competent dealer of truth. I want to tell you, roosh, I appreciate this act of bravery. Thank you. You are doing the lords work, after quite an experience as a prodigal son.

      1. Tyler Durden January 24, 2019 at 9:20 pm

        Roosh Google is not letting us get into Return of Kings. Everytime we try to
        Google puts a message with a red background stating that “The following website has been infected by malware from”. You better check it out or your traffic will drop out even more.

      2. Roosh January 25, 2019 at 9:55 am

        I’m not getting that error. What’s your browser/country? It could just be an isolated page with a bad ad.

  30. Norman January 24, 2019 at 6:21 pm

    Nah playboy, why don’t you admit that you just chose the wrong path. Plenty of people saying whatever the fuck on the internet and are doing fine. You tapped way too far into the mentally ill, prepper, Incel, School Shooter, racist crowd and not enough into the ‘in it for the luls” crowd. You took yourself wayyyy too seriously so you have nobody to blame but yourself that these big companies took you seriously as well.

  31. Karma can be tough January 25, 2019 at 12:17 pm

    TBH kinda sounds like you are crying because you can’t profit off third-party platforms anymore by being a douche. If you didn’t see this coming you are an actual moron. You get what you put into the world.

  32. Andreas Alexander January 25, 2019 at 11:56 pm

    Roosh, will we be seeing another ‘best of’ collection released by you anytime soon? I’d be down to buy that along with your first collection of 90 essays.

    1. Roosh January 27, 2019 at 8:31 am

      Yes it will be released by the summer. I will also re-edit the first collection.

  33. Johnny Perez January 26, 2019 at 2:32 pm

    Aham aham the Unabomber was right. Technology is contrary to decentralization. I like your site but I must say you don”™t have the right answers, you denied climate change like if it was a conspiracy made up by Mexicans and the Chinese to undermine U.S production. Haven”™t you thought that maybe, just maybe the answer is in traditional religions? Why did traditional religions reject materialism and overposession of stuff by a small elite? Because they knew (but it seems that college graduates don”™t now) that the pie cannot grow indefenetly, and this destroys the fabric of society. What the world needs is humility, the technological arms race is going to worsen the situation. Anyway Roosh enjoy the decline.

  34. Kagunlou January 27, 2019 at 11:29 am

    Sorry but free speech is NOT the same as truth. Maybe whenever you acknowledge that you will get your content back and will stop being a “victim”

  35. ALick January 28, 2019 at 12:39 pm

    Why this Roosh “Cunt” is crying foul…… This guy and other moderators have banned so many people from his site (RooshVForum) for no reason. When he get banned; he is crying like a feminist whore…..

    No Sympthy here

  36. William Gheen January 28, 2019 at 1:37 pm

    Hang in there Roosh! Each time they block you one way, find another. Never give up the fight and never surrender no matter what the odds look like. The freedoms America brought to the world are in great peril, but we are not beyond the point of no return yet. With God’s help we may still prevail.

  37. Ivan January 28, 2019 at 1:37 pm

    I’m happ to read this article, but your robots.txt doesn’t allow me to save it into the Web Archive (Wayback Machine).

    What if your limited reach was just your robots.txt misconfigured? Because it looks like so.

  38. 5BetJohnnyChan January 28, 2019 at 9:10 pm

    I am moved… This article is a thing of beauty. Should be mandatory reading for the next generation.

    Not a big fan if Icke.
    He makes sense sometimes,
    but I believe its for reasons of attention.
    He will exaggerate if he can get away with it.

  40. commenter777 January 28, 2019 at 11:04 pm

    Roosh, please don’t compare yourself to Alex Jones. You are one of the most insightful men I know. I never heard a coherent thing come out of his mouth. He was there just to cash in on the hysteria (and it worked – good for him).

  41. NeosWillCloneAndBuildAnArmy January 29, 2019 at 6:32 pm

    Time to fight back this hidden elite, that needs a good smack!

  42. CryptoDeaf January 29, 2019 at 7:59 pm

    What you should do is install Freenet, get a Flog and while you still have a voice on the surface web, promote your Flog and Sona here until the inevitable culling of your voice completely from the surface web, this way we can follow you P2P instead and donate cryptocurrency to you.

  43. Edward Easterling January 29, 2019 at 8:42 pm

    Best article you’ve written yet. It’s time for men to stop chasing pussy and start getting freedom.

  44. BetaMan January 29, 2019 at 10:07 pm

    So the moral is: Don’t quit a good-paying job with a career path to follow some illusory new technology that you believe will bring you wealth and glory.

  45. TMan69 January 30, 2019 at 12:47 am

    Roosh burns bridges before he crosses them. Every old thread on RVF has 50%+ banned members.

    In the meantime people like Cernovich have cultivated expansive networks and alliances with other internet personalities. These will help him weather any storm.

    Roosh is a fucking egotist and a moron. He’s spent the last decade+ being a vile troll. Even free-speech advocates won’t come to your defense when you have been fully de-platformed from all tech. No one will come to your defense when you live in a box.

  46. Brianmark January 30, 2019 at 2:48 am

    Roosh, I know things are horrible now for American males. Don’t you think that things will get better and like the Salem Witch Trials and McCarthyism this will pass?

  47. Splooge January 31, 2019 at 4:04 am

    Fuckrd up they just hating on a brown man…..yet somehow stormfront is still up.
    Tumblr is up 4chan id up.

    Ur crime is what datibg advice.

  48. Splooge January 31, 2019 at 4:13 am

    U cant go back to ur microbiolgy job?
    But dont feel bad though pua internatonal life aint sustainable.
    Mark zolo naughty nomad retired in malta to start a bar instead of blogging on third world ass.
    Krauser is movibg away from that too.
    Its nit easy to live in shitholes like thailand n russia theres a reason why they come here in mass not vice versa. Plus foreign girls are as challenging an at times worse then western girls. But all cities are the same.

    Just get away from the cities u wont deal with slutty bi career women.
    Trust me im from one of the most cucked citues in the west but an hr drive away from downtown ull see a difference

    1. John January 31, 2019 at 6:46 am

      I get the impression the entire “PUA” period is over. Before the internet guys were basically left in the dark, and could not “connect the dots”. WIth the advent of the internet information started to move faster. “PUA” was just the marketing of game advice, Mystery and Neill Strauss made good money of that and they preached something that was rather culturally dependent. The culture has moved on and there are now many women who will refuse to be approached in the streets. I have actually met women who were in some sort of a cuck-relationship with a guy who had supplicated to them by first texting over a period of months through FB, where she, undoubtedly, let him jump through all kinds of hoops.
      So what are you going to do with your approach techniques in the west? Of course the general advice of PUA (get fit, dress sharp, no negativism) will still help you a lot, but maybe only in non-western parts of the world. “Culture” has now moved passed PUA.

      Out of PUA came “Red pill”, which basically framed a bigger picture of what PUA actually is: the pathetic attempt of boys to outsmart the influence feminism had on women, while in the process only acting exactly like feminism wants them to: it is only about pump-and-dump in PUA.

      Well now even Red Pill gets old, if you have not incorporated red pill by now, you must have been living under a stone for the last decades.

      And what is the conclusion? What solutions are all these people from the manosphere offering now? Well they have no solution either. They just repeat themselves in describing the problem: Roosh, Roland Tomassi, Chateau Heartiste and all these people rightly complain about the negative effects of feminism. But they are just describing the misery.

      No wonder lots of former PUAs are dropping out. Once you get to the Red Pill-level of knowledge and understanding of what is going on in western society, do you really wanna go out and act exactly like the feminists want you to?

      To be honest, I really do wonder what younger guys actually turn to nowadays? Like 10 years ago there was “PUA”, maybe now they just hang out on Twitch and give up all together??

    All the more reason to make a profitable offline revenue, particularly blue collar jobs, especially electricians and plumbers.

  50. Ruben February 7, 2019 at 4:10 pm

    Don’t despair. Every regime falls, and this one will too.

    There is no need of using social media, watching TV, reading news or pay any attention to the hellish dystopia they are building up.

    Don’t fight against them. Focus on your interests. Live your life. Avoid their traps. There’s plenty of good people out there, good women too. Find them, enjoy live with them.

  51. alanferrara February 20, 2019 at 5:26 pm

    I can feel you having a little bit of self pity, Roosh. Men like you cannot submit, for it is when leaders fall, all the rest fall with them. You are giving them the right hand with these kind of sad speech. They banned you because you have power. Nature is in your side. Nature doesn’t give a fuck about degenerates, it just wipes them out eventually. You can take advantage of this battle, you must have enemies if would win renown and respect. They won’t surrender easily, why would you? Are they better than you?
